Report of the Fun Afternoon on 3 Sep

We had five participants for the workshop and ten entries for the training show.

Taking advantage of the small attendance, we offered almost-one-on-one instruction. As all dogs were able to perform basic tricks already, the participants learned how to reduce hand signals using a gate and how to incorporate transitions in a sequence of multiple moves with Tatiana and Jan. In addition, Ros and Shona helped a student deal with her dog’s barking issue.

All dogs had a great time learning new stuff and getting lots of treats!

In the training show our special instructor Jan gave us feedback on our routines, which made it a great opportunity to find ways to improve the use of the ring space, the structure of routines, and so on.

We hope to have another fun afternoon later this year.
